But, according to a recent study, apparently we’re all wearing a lot more makeup this time of year. During the holidays, women reportedly wear 12 different kinds of makeup on their face. Twelve! That’s a dozen products. I mean, even when I add in some eye shadow and blusher (which is what I wear when I want to be fancy), I’m still only up to five types of makeup.
I’m not dissing on girls who live to wear tons of makeup, but I just don’t get it, either. I mean, how big of a bag do you carry to keep all that stuff with you during the day? It’s not like one application of makeup stays on forever. You need to have all that stuff with you for touch ups. Plus? Who are you wearing this makeup for? If you’re wearing it for you, because you think you look cool with hot pink eye shadow or giant false eye lashes, then fine! Go for it, girl! But if you’re wearing all this makeup for guys, well, that’s kind of a silly thing to do. First off, even at the drug store, makeup is expensive! Even just one tube of lipstick (and we all know how long those last–not very long!) can cost about $10 at CVS. And from what I’ve heard from most guys I know, they think it’s kind of a turn off when girls wear too much makeup. It’s like they’ve got something to hide or something.
So, my advice to you, pretty girl, is to just think about how much makeup you really need. If you’re using so many products you have to use all your fingers and some toes to count them up, maybe you could ditch one or two. Well, unless it’s glitter makeup . . . but then I’m a sucker for anything shiny.
What do you think? Do you know girls who wear too much makeup? How much makeup do you put on in the morning? Tell us in the comments!
